Biggest loss at Princes Park
Melbourne's biggest ever loss at Princes Park remained their biggest loss against the Eagles until Round 2, 2012 and came off the back of a last quarter capitulation where they shut up shop in front of the tiny Princes Park crowd and allowed the visitors to boot 10 goals to one in the final quarter to snap a four game losing streak.
Best were Hopgood and Turley.
